9-Foot-Long Python Discovered on School Property, Teacher Uses It as Lesson
Earlier this week, an enormous Burmese python was spotted outside Homestead Senior High School, and quickly apprehended by Miami-Dade school officers.
Instead of keeping his students away from the scene, Joe Gonzalez, a teacher at the school, brought his entire class out to meet the unexpected visitor.
"It just so happens that the topic we're teaching is related to a surprise they had for me outside," Gonzalez told WSVN. "[Students] were able to see it here in real life, an example of invasive species coming onto our territory."
Eventually, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue's Venom Unit came to remove the animal from the scene and turned it over to Florida Fish and Wildlife.
